For reasons piano-lesson related, I spend 30 minutes at Chapters every week. For those of you who may have been following along, I am definitely trying to purge my consumerism tendencies, so Wednesdays can be a bit challenging when you combine Kate Spade Stationery with Gardening Magazines. It’s hard to resist.
Nevertheless, I have enough paper goods and access to the gazillion Pinterest gardening boards, that I don’t NEED a gold and acrylic stapler engraved with a catchy “Keep It Together” plate, right? RIGHT??
That’s right.. I also don’t NEED Whitney English’s Day Designer ? Because I make my own, right? RIGHT??
All this to say that I am a sucker for all that is paper organizational stuff (the official terminology). In my purse, at all times, I carry my project notebook, my day planner (self-drawn) and my new meditation journal…. yes, you read right. Meditation Journal! The one that was inspired by the 5 Minute Journal and that without a doubt, constitutes the thing I look most forward to in my morning routine (which in and of itself is my favorite part of the day- by faaaaar).
I’ve always talked about developing my own planner, and seeing this Day Designer made me realize that lots of people are looking for paper organizational products that help you keep focused, and add a nice ritual to your day.
For fear of sounding very bloggish- how do you guys keep your days organized? Paper, iphone reminders, wall calendars?
And with that, I wish you all a happy weekend and know that this space made my month, re-affirmed the need for writing (badly- geez, I need to edit my posts properly!) and self-reflection in my life.
Come back next week if you want, and we can chat about vision boards, the garden and my desire to wear kaftans + kitchen clogs daily.
